We have had such great success with our Gator Giving for the Christmas Hampers! The response has been beyond what we expected for this unusual year.
We can not thank our students and families enough for all the big and little ways this effort has been supported. As in all other years, we came together as a community to give to those who need our help. A great thank you to Karla Love who does so much to coordinated the work of our Christmas Hampers. She had many wonderful “elves” who helped with the shopping and the wrapping of the gifts. The St Eleanor’s Lions Club will be seeing that the families receive their gifts as well as hampers of food.
The winners of our Raffle Baskets were Gina Toledo and Jennifer Matthew. Congratulations to Gina and Jennifer!

Here are some important updates for parents:
- Parent Teacher Interviews:
Thank you to all those parents who participated in Parent-Teacher Interviews. These are valuable discussions and we were happy that in-person interviews could happen. Report cards for our first term will be going home on Wednesday, December 2nd.

Some parents have not yet paid for their November milk and pizza. Please do this as soon as you can.
- Kindergarten Registration:
Registration for Kindergarten the coming school year is now taking place. Please come and register your child so planning for our newest students can begin!
- COVID Protocols:
A message was sent to all parents yesterday regarding the changes due to the Atlantic Bubble being suspended for two weeks. We hope all parents have read this and will follow the guidelines.
All students need to have a mask each day for the bus or when they are travelling anywhere in the school. Some students have been wearing “gaiters.” This is the statement from from the CPHO:
“Face shields, spit guards, gaiters and scarves are not substitutes for non-medical masks.”
We ask that parents ensure that their child comes to school each day with a mask.
Here is the link to the mask Do’s and Don’ts from the provincial government:
Due to COVID restrictions, our water fountains are not available to students. All students must bring a bottle of water with them each day. They are able to fill them up at school. At times, we have water bottles at school but it is getting costly and we are concerned about the waste. We have been going through many bottles! We ask that parents see that children come to school with their own bottle.
Tomorrow is our last Gators Giving Day!
It is Red and Green Day – a Christmas theme! Wear your ugly Christmas Sweater, your red and green hats, socks, shirts, anything to celebrate Christmas!
Please bring a toonie, loonie or anything you can to add to our Christmas Hampers!
